Abstract :

In this paper, we studied the interaction of heat transfer with peristaltic pumping of a Williamson fluid through a porous medium in a planar channel, under the assumptions of low Reynolds number and long wavelength. The flow is investigated in a wave frame of reference moving with velocity of the wave. The perturbation series in the Weissenberg number (We <1) was used to obtain explicit forms for velocity field, pressure gradient and friction force per one wavelength. The effects of Weissenberg number We, Darcy number Da and amplitude ratio phi on the pumping characteristics and heat transfer are discussed through graphs in detail.
